Sigh... Poor little Falkor obviously isn't happy in his little tank, it's a bit bare. Unfortunately I'm going to have to keep it like that until I can get a hidey-hole without live plants on it for him (this weekend should be able to, a shop down the road has the nifty little tunnels I've got in Feyd and Weehawk's tanks for $5, it's awesome) so he's going to have to wait a day or two... He seems to be occupying himself fairly well though, that bubble nest he's been busily building for the last couple of days is covering about half the water surface!
I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of the last couple of items for the tank overhaul. The sponge filters and the valve thingies for them are the last things that need to show up before I can begin working on the tanks. Boy, that's going to be a big job!
Going to have to wait until the second weekend in February, as it's the Red Dwarf/Trekkie convention weekend next week. Hopefully the organisers have actually seen my email about wanting to pay cash for our tickets. We haven't got a response yet, and I emailed them last week... I'm just hoping they haven't re-allocated our tickets to someone else. That would suck royally. I have paid in cash on the day before for a different OzTrek weekend of theirs, so it should be fine... Key word: should. They might not recognise me this time, I'm not dressing in my full Borg costume again, haha. It'll be nice having depth perception for once - the other two Star Trek conventions I went to, I had a black lycra catsuit with PVC accents and computer parts I'd spray-painted black sewn on, an eyepiece made of computer parts that covered that eye, a corset, six-inch platform boots and a white contact lens that obscured most of my vision along with tonnes of makeup. Pretty awesome Seven of Nine (full Borg era, not big-chested w/Starfleet uniform, haha) outfit for a homemade effort, if I do say so myself, haha. I was perpetually afraid of falling over the whole time I was in that gear, haha. It'll be nice to be comfy for once, even if that outfit did earn me a hug from Brent Spiner. (still totally SQUEEEEE about that... >.<)
Gah! So excited after that convention blabber I just had. ALL OF THE EXCITEMENT!
